The restaurant provides great views from the terrace which overlooks the Mevlana Museum, a perfect stop for lunch after a visit there. The Lamb and eggplant casserole and Shish meatballs were delicious. If we had the opportunity, we would have come back to dine here again, both for the food and the picturesque views.

This restaurant has a really good location, with the rooftop terrace overlooking the Mevlana Museum. The menu had only one dish with chicken, which was a disappointment. It was difficult to communicate with the staff as they speak only Turkish, no English. It is popular with the locals, so maybe our food choice was not the best, because we didn't... More

After visiting Rumi's tomb this was a perfect finishing touch with a great view of the not so distant Mosque in the evening sun. The menu was great. Everyone was more then satisfied with their selection.

We have eaten here 2 times, we could have gone one more time if we had time. We good traditional meat dishes. Waiters and the owner are very friendly. The high balcon looking to the mosque and the Mevlana musuem is very impressive. It is one of the few places in the city where there is some calmness while you... More

After my visit for the museum of Rumi , l saw this restaurant from the garden of the museum and tried to have dinner. The staff were very welcoming and their menu had different options to pick. I had Tirit and loved it. Tirit is traditional food for Konya and made by beef , onions , parsley and yoghurt. If... More

Good location for the museum and spor centre for Kültüre festival. Food was good but not exceptional. Ideal if you want something quick and not to expensive.

Decent food but on the pricey side. If you travel a little further up Mevlana CD you can find a few decent ground level cafes that serve better tasting food.

I have been there only once for dinner. It is a well set restaurant with traditional offerings. All I ate were very nicely presented and tasted well. The view out the windows and from the terrace were breath taking. The one star is off because they called the 1000 year old "pide" a pizza.

The views from this terrace restaurant overlooking the Mevlana Rumi Museum is lovely. The food is variable, but the firin kebap was a standout dish from our visit to Turkey. Cooked for many hours in the oven, the lamb was juicy, flavourful and succulent, falling apart with just a fork. Perfect with the turkish rice that accompanied it, everyone else... More
